With eight days remaining to kick off the African Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon, Uganda Cranes striker Geofrey Serunkuuma is eagerly waiting to repay off the faith put in him by his coach Micho Sredojovich.
“I want to score for Uganda at AFCON and I also make history. The AFCON is a big tournament and I am really honoured to be part of the 23 players to represent the nation. I want to repay the trust the coach put in me with goals” he said.
The soft spoken and calm striker is one of the six locally based players in the Cranes squad and brings a lot of experience in the squad as his scoring rate in the national side speaks for him.
The former Bloemfoentein Celtic, Vasco dagama, Lweza FC and Sports Club Victoria University striker whose memorable goal in national colours came in 2006 against Cape Verde Island at Namboole stadium was part of the Uganda Cranes team that participated in the CHAN Championship tournament in Rwanda in 2016 and scored against Zimbabwe in their 1-1 draw.
He is currently the leading scorer in the Azam Uganda Premier with nine goals for his side KCCA FC.
